Remember that the overall effect you want to achieve is one of lightness – in every sense of the word. The space should lift your spirits, and be designed to reflect and refract light around the room. So when thinking about the momentos to include, consider varying the surfaces – enrich the space with intriguing, tactile objects.
It may be about adding personal experiences and memories to your home, but you still want it to feel modern, airy and forward-looking. You can add a contemporary twist to a room using a block of darker tone such as the grey blue Colour of the Year 2017, Denim Drift, as a subtle statement feature on a wall.
